Baker greeted commuters at Boston’s South Station on Wednesday and promised to run a positive race that will show voters the differences between him and Coakley.
The former Harvard Pilgrim Health Care executive, who was also the 2010 GOP nominee for governor, easily defeated Mark Fisher in Tuesday’s party primary.
Democrats, meanwhile, gathered for a unity meeting in Boston that included Coakley and her primary opponents, Steven Grossman and Don Berwick.READ MORE: Massachusetts Considers Letting Electric Bikes In Bike Lanes
Coakley has called on Baker to take a so-called “people’s pledge” against advertising by so-called Super PACs in the November race, but Baker’s campaign said Wednesday that was not an option.
